LAW 0471: Patent Prosecution
Fall 2018 • Section 21 • CRN 31252

Course Description

This course will focus on the legal issues that arise during the process of drafting patent applications and negotiating with patent examiners over patent validity. We will look at the prosecution history of a single successful patent application, and examine the kinds of decisions that the prosecuting attorneys were called upon to make and the ways in which questions about patent law, patent licensing, and the enforceability of patents and possible litigation concerns, help to shape the prosecution process.
